To determine if hydrophobic surfactant proteins affect the stability of pulmonary surfactant monolayers at an air/water interface, the studies reported here compared the kinetics of collapse for the complete set of lipids in calf surfactant with and without the proteins. Monomolecular films spread at the surface of captive bubbles were compressed at 37 degrees C to surface pressures above 46 mN/m, at which collapse first occurred. The rate of area-compression required to maintain a constant… CONTINUE READING
